Gen. Price.

Gen. Price is, beyond all doubt, a live General. All bell to Gen. Price .... who, with limited means, always accomplishes remarkable results, and, with overpowering armies around him, always gives a good account of himself. Without disparagement to West Point Generals, we must be permitted to believe that once in a while Nature makes a General just to show West Point how is ought to be done. General Price is one of Nature's specimens. How do you like him ? We believe in West Point to a certain extent but are no idolaters. Neither Cæsar nor Alexander ever graduated at a military school, and Napoleon would always have been Napoleon, if he had never seen the inside of an academy.
